See What Atiku Did At The PDP Women Town Hall Meeting In Abuja (Photos)


Did you know that women only constitute about 6% of Buhari's cabinet?

This, and many other issues were brought to the fore as female engineers, architects, medical doctors, academics, traders, artisans, students, market women, and a host of other women gathered for the town hall meeting for women in Abuja, hosted by the PDP Presidential Campaign team.

Atiku whose entrance to the venue elicited wide celebrations could not hold back his emotions as he danced joyfully to the music with the women which sent the crowd into a frenzy.

During the interactive event which was the first by the campaign organization, Atiku said he decided interact with the women first because of  the key roles women play in families and nation building, citing  the role his mother and grandmother played in his upbringing.

During the two hour long event, Atiku interacted and responded to questions on restructuring, women empowerment, jobs for young women, care for the aged , geriatrics, ending  boko haram, food prices and food security, agriculture, poverty and a host of others, making references to the thousands of women he has brought out of poverty using his Microfinance Bank as a platform.

Also speaking at the event, Senator Olujimi the Senate  Minority leader noted that Women got 35% under Jonathan and the PDP, but under APC, 6 percent was their best. She went further to state that most women legislators were PDP and that APC does not consider women fit as principal officers for both chambers wheras women, including herself were considered fit for leadership under the PDP in both the Senate and House of Representatives.

This assertion was corroborated by Senator Zainab Kure who heaped praises on Atiku for his women empowerment initiatives from 1999 till date, citing examples of herself and many others as beneficiaries

The event was anchored by Dr Baraka Sani and Chinwe Nnorom.
